The total package. If your day consists of riding anything from powder to groomers to park laps, this is your snowboard equivalent to a swiss army knife. The MAGNE-TRACTION® will give you unparalelled control in any snow condition, and the multi-camber will give you stability on groomers, float in pow and greasy presses. Basalt stringers and a mid-stiff flex on this directional twin add a ton of pop to your ride. With a super fast sintered base, the award-winning Aether is ready to tackle the entire mountain.
- Magne-Traction ®: Extra edge contact points to give your board more edge control and stability, especially in icy conditions.
- Basalt Stringers: Used to replace carbon fiber because of its similar characteristics, it’s also more eco-friendly!
- Snappy Sap Bio Resin: More elastic and snappier than normal resin. Dampens vibrations, extremely high adhesion properties to help keep your board from delaminating.
- Digi-Print Topsheet: Direct digital print, lacquer free, matte finish topsheet.
- Water-Based Inks: Non-toxic solvent-free. UV-based ink.
- Recycled Materials: Recycled bases, sidewalls and edges.
- Sustainable Wood Cores: Locally sourced, FSC Certified wood cores.
Like the name suggests, hybrid profiles are a mix of camber, flat and rocker. There are heaps of different combinations of this employed by snowboard manufacturers. The rocker in the tip and tail are great for turn initiation and float in powder, whilst the camber underfoot adds stability, pop and increased edge-hold. You get the edge-hold you need from the camber section underfoot and the float in powder from the rocker sections.
A true twin shape is completely symmetrical. If you cut a true twin in half exactly down the middle, you would end up with two identical pieces of board.
This means that the nose and the tail are the same length and the same width and the bindings are centred on the board – i.e. they are equal distances from the centre of the board and the front binding is the same distance from the nose as the back binding is from the tail.
Of course, as you can adjust the width of the position of the bindings you could create a setback stance if you were so inclined but this would be unusual on a true twin given its purpose and might be a strange feel depending on the camber profile (i.e. one foot could end up being over camber and the other over rocker which would probably feel odd).
In addition to this a true twin has exactly the same flex in the nose and tail.
